Tom Glover (IBM), currently serving as the president & chairman of the Board for WS-I, has some news on his blog about what the WS-I will be pursuing in the future. In particular, check out the following blog posts:

To paraphrase a recent e-mail, what this in effect means is that “…  effectively, WS-I has agreed to produce profiles that cover the scope of the IBM/Ford/Daimler RAMP profile. The RAMP profile composes on the WS-I Basic Profile 1.1 and WS-I Basic Security Profile 1.0 and adds the following specifications: (1) WS-Addressing (2) WS-Reliable Messaging and (3) WS-Secure Conversation.  The main difference in the proposed work in WS-I is that WS-Addressing will instead be included in an amended version of the WS-I Basic Profile 1.1 (called Basic Profile 1.2).

Additionally, to address interoperability of attachments support, support for MTOM/XOP in a SOAP 1.1 context will be considered. Once the rechartered Basic Profile WG completes its work on the Basic Profile 1.2, it would then begin work on a Basic Profile 2.0 that is based on SOAP 1.2 and MTOM/XOP.”

This is good news indeed as I expect to be leveraging a lot of this in my environment going forward.
